Comcast Partners with Legendary Mexican Rock Band EL TRI to Provide Sign Language Interpretation for the First Time at Upcoming Music in the Park Concert

Comcast California

Comcast has partnered with legendary Mexican rock band, EL TRI to provide sign language interpretation for their June 22 Music in the Park performance at Plaza de Cesar Chavez in San Jose. This marks the first time that EL TRI, whose lyrics are in Spanish, will perform with sign language interpreters to provide greater accessibility to deaf and hard-of-hearing, fans. Comcast recently announced the availability of live American Sign Language (ASL) interpreting services at eight Bay Area Xfinity Store locations. Customers who need ASL support can visit any of the eight Bay Area Xfinity Stores, where representatives will utilize ASL Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) to access a live interpreter provided by partner, Communication Service for the Deaf (CSD). EL TRI, one of Latin America's most iconic rock bands, will perform as part of San Jose’s popular Music in the Park summer concert series. The addition of ASL interpreters underscores Comcast’s dedication to accessibility and community engagement. "We are thrilled to be part of this wonderful initiative," said Alex Lora, lead singer of EL TRI. "Music is a universal language, and it’s important that everyone, regardless of their hearing ability, can share in the experience and energy of our live performances. We can’t wait to rock out with all our fans in San Jose!" In addition to the interpreting services at the concert and in its stores, Comcast recently announced $60,000 in grants to three community partners: San Francisco LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired, California School for the Deaf and the World Institute on Disability. These grants aim to broaden the scope of digital inclusion and accessibility to deaf and hard-of-hearing students, families, seniors, and community members. The American Community Survey (ACS) estimates that 3.6% of the U.S. population is “deaf or have serious difficulty hearing.” Additionally, according to Pew Research Center, 23% of people with disabilities say they never go online, with 57% saying they do not have a home broadband connection. That’s why, through its Project UP initiative, Comcast is working to address and eliminate the unique barriers to connectivity through a series of efforts, including Internet Essentials, Lift Zones, and skill development and training. Continuing Comcast’s ongoing commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility, this event, in collaboration with Pro Bono ASL, aims to make the EL TRI concert more inclusive for the deaf and the hard-of-hearing. “This historical event is meaningful because these interpreters are trilingual. They know Spanish, English and American Sign Language which is creating inclusivity within the Latino deaf community which often tends to be left behind,” said Rorri Burton, Founder and Director of Pro Bono ASL, an organization that specializes in bringing immigrant, first-gen, transracial adoptees, queer, multilingual and multicultural ASL interpreters to concerts, festivals and events across the U.S. “We are grateful to Comcast for demonstrating inclusivity and commitment to the Latino deaf community.” In addition to interpreting the iconic lyrics of EL TRI to fans at the concert, interpreters from Pro Bono ASL will translate the announcers of the traditional Lucha Libre matches that Music in the Park will offer as entertainment to attendees before the concert. The matches will feature local wrestlers such as "El Gladiador del aire” El Viento and "Rey de las pesadillas” El Cucuy. Music in the Park details: • Date: Saturday, June 22, 2024 • Time: Doors open at 4:00 PM • Location: Plaza de Cesar Chavez, San Jose, CA • Special Feature: ASL interpretation provided by Pro Bono ASL, sponsored by Comcast About Pro Bono ASL Pro Bono ASL prioritizes ASL access via culturally qualified interpreters. We work with Deaf, hearing and Deaf-parented sign language interpreters; those who are immigrant, first-gen, transracial adoptees, queer, multilingual and multicultural. Representation is vital, and so are the nuances of culture that impact language. Pro Bono treasures the unique intersectionalities that make our interpreters the perfect fit for the spectrum of members in the Deaf community. As our name, "pro bono" indicates, we work "for the good" of the community. About Comcast’s Accessibility Program For more than a decade, Comcast has invested in making its products, technology, and experiences accessible to the widest possible audience while opening new doors to independence for people with disabilities.

Golden Triangle Ventures’ ‘Destino Ranch’ Set To Unlock Significant Shareholder Value

RazorPitch - GTVH

The leisure and recreational industry seems poised for a stellar recovery after bearing the brunt of the COVID-19 outbreak, which caused sector revenue to decline substantially. That recovery is evident by the fact that the Invesco Leisure and Entertainment ETF (NYSEARCA:PEJ) is up over 27% over the past six months alone compared to the S&P 500, which is up only 21.7% over the same timeframe. According to The Business Research Company, the arts, entertainment, and recreation sector had a combined annual revenue of about $265 billion in the US alone but is highly fragmented, creating highly profitable opportunities for companies like Golden Triangle Ventures, Inc (OTC:GTVH). Golden Triangle Ventures, Inc (OTC:GTVH) is a multifaceted consulting company pursuing opportunities in the Health, Entertainment and Technology sectors. It also has other additional projects under development that will provide synergistic value to these divisions. Essentially, GTVH seeks to purchase, acquire, and/or joint venture with established entities that management can help assist and develop into unique opportunities. In order to capitalize on the burgeoning opportunity in the leisure and recreational sector, GTVH recently announced a number of exciting corporate developments. First, Lavish Entertainment, GTVH’s wholly owned subsidiary, has developed a comprehensive four-pillar business model that will be a critical component in advancing its mission to create an industry leading entertainment business. For some background, Lavish Entertainment is a Las Vegas-based company that began operations back in 2017 with a vision of becoming nationally recognized in concert production. It has successfully organized some of the most exciting electronic dance music concerts in Las Vegas. Lavish Entertainment’s new model encompasses the following key foundational elements: logistics, staffing, equipment, and production. These pillars were meticulously identified and organized to complement each other and ensure seamless operations across all facets of the company. Second, and what has been getting investors most excited about the company, is that GTVH recently announced the execution of an agreement to acquire approximately 70 acres of prime and improved land for its Destino Ranch ( www.DestinoRanch.com ) project, a flagship venture under its entertainment division. Located strategically in Arizona, this achievement marks a significant milestone for Golden Triangle Ventures. The Destino Ranch project is planned as a multifaceted destination center set to redefine entertainment and hospitality in the region while being sustainable. Ultimately, it will be a destination where nature and technology combine to create unforgettable experiences. Destino Ranch intends to become an international destination that rivals Coachella and other well-known festival sites. With access to nearly 22,000 visitors traveling through the area per day, the location offers an appealing opportunity to become a modern art and music festival mecca. Destino will complement the beautiful natural attributes of the Mojave Desert with an immersive, world-class art installation gallery with rotating exhibits, and a large-scale music venue with state-of-the-art staging and production. As you can see below, Destino is uniquely located on the highly traveled State Route 93 artery between Las Vegas and Phoenix, which is why it would be so compelling for even organizers. The significantly improved property currently includes perimeter fencing, graded roads, solar power systems, large permanent structures, multiple garden areas with nutrient-rich organic soil, a well, a septic system, complete irrigation systems for all the trees, security cameras, and heavy equipment for upkeep and development. These upgrades represent a substantial investment totaling nearly $6 million, which has turned this once-vacant land into a beautiful oasis that provides the initial infrastructure needed to begin the development of Destino Ranch. Steffan Dalsgaard, CEO of Golden Triangle Ventures, stated, "This marks a significant step forward in our vision to create a one-of-a-kind destination that celebrates art, music, and entertainment year-round. Our entire team is beyond confident in our ability to bring this project to life, and our plan is coming closer to reality every day." Just to put the opportunity here in better context, consider this: Billboard reports that Coachella earned more than $114 million in profits in 2017, the first reoccurring festival to break the $100 million mark in a single year. Although that amount is still slightly below the highest-grossing festival of all time—2016's two-weekend Desert Trip, which earned more than $160 million — Coachella has again claimed the top spot among profitable reoccurring festivals, a distinction it has earned each year since 2011. And as the festival's popularity has grown, so has its profit — seven-fold since 2007. In 2007, Coachella earned $16 million when it was still a one-weekend deal. After moving the celebration to two weekends in 2012, the festival earned $47.3 million. At the moment, GTVH has a market capitalization of about $4 million, which implies that even if it only manages to capture 10% of Coachella’s market share, it would be able to unlock substantial shareholder value. Golden Triangle Ventures is actively working to prepare a series of internal production events and will secure bookings for showcasing beginning in Q4 of 2024, further solidifying Destino Ranch's position as a premier entertainment destination. This project is one of Lavish’s largest undertakings and will be managed by GTVH’s newest acquisition, ABI Create, a premier event management and production firm. ABI will maximize the integrated synergy of the four pillars to amplify the development of Destino Ranch and will utilize the project to showcase the newly formed strategic model. ABI Create ( www.ABICreate.com ) was founded in 2015 by Marco Antonio Moreno, who was recently appointed as the new president and COO of Lavish Entertainment. ABI has delivered high-quality productions for a range of large-scale installations at major music festivals, sporting events, and conventions across the United States. Notable projects include collaborations with the NFL Super Bowl, San Diego and New York Comic Con, EDC and Camp EDC, Bonnaroo Music Festival, the Waste Management Phoenix Open, Arnold Palmer Invitational, Burning Man, and many more. For investors who may still be wondering whether this is the right time to get back into leisure and recreational stocks, MSGE’s recent earnings calls reaffirm the outlook of the broader industry. For instance, in the recently reported 2Q24 results, MSGE brought in $403 million, beating consensus expectations of $385 million. This strong growth was attributed to an increase in the number of concerts held at the company’s venue compared to the similar period last year and higher per-event revenues. Management noted that compared to 2Q23 concert bookings for 1H25 at the Garden were ahead by a fairly strong double-digit percentage, and it appears this trend would persist even when looking farther ahead into FY25. In addition to that, the company revealed that four of its venues were on track to exceed initial expectations for concerts this year, and that includes ‘The Garden', where the company is on track to set a new record for the number of concert bookings on a full year basis. And in Q3, the company hosted more than 1.5 million guests at over 200 live events across its portfolio of venues. More importantly, GTVH has reaffirmed its dedication to continuously enhancing shareholder value as the company scales its operations. That is why the company recently announced a pivotal agreement with T&K Zarro, LLC, managed by Tom Zarro, T&K Zarro president and the largest note holder in GTVH. Under this landmark agreement, T&K Zarro, LLC has committed to a structured and disciplined sale of GTVH stock, limiting sales to no more than 10% of the daily trading volume on any given day. Additionally, T&K Zarro has agreed to a 6-month moratorium on all interest accruals within its convertible debentures held in GTVH. This moratorium period is designed to provide GTVH with the necessary time to optimize its operations and capitalize on growth opportunities. Disclaimers: RazorPitch Inc.

Rising Bond Yield A Threat For Bitcoin, Investors Pouring Millions To GFOX

RoundHouse Media

The rising bond yields in the USA could impact investments in alternative assets like Bitcoin. Interest rates in 2024 range just over 5%, an increase from the average for most of the last decade. Investors are exploring alternative assets like $GFOX that offer more upside. Rising bond yields in the USA could dampen the appetite for alternative investments like Bitcoin. The Federal Reserve has kept the interest rates at a fairly high level since the Covid-19 Pandemic, which means better returns for bond investors. Bitcoin is still on a historic tear after a solid start to the year. A combination of the halving event and positive regulatory developments have added wind to the sails of the pioneer crypto. Investors keen on untapped potential are looking into exciting new projects like Galaxy Fox ($GFOX) for more upside. This project has strong momentum after listing on Uniswap in April and looks to be the next $1 crypto. Rising Bond Yields Could Affect Bitcoin US treasury bond yields have hit a four-month high, increasing the attractiveness of this investment. Bonds are some of the most stable investments in the financial markets and the higher return consolidates this advantage. The high level of yield could be to the detriment of other equities and alternative assets. Stock markets continue to operate at record highs making notable stocks expensive for traders. The possibility of getting excellent returns for bonds makes them a more attractive proposition. Bitcoin could also feel some of the aftershocks. Competing against high yield from the most stable investment in the financial sector is a tall order. That said, Bitcoin prices are a unique phenomenon and may not have the predicted symmetry with traditional financial markets. $GFOX Offers A Rising Alternative To BTC Bitcoin continues to hold steady but appears headed for a period of consolidation. Investors looking for assets with more upside potential are looking at growing altcoin projects for alternatives. One such proposition is Galaxy Fox ($GFOX). This utility meme coin continues to draw plaudits after launching its play-to-earn game (P2E) game in May. $GFOX is an ERC-20 and, therefore, broadly compatible with Ethereum wallets. Galaxy Fox’s gaming ecosystem involves players raising digital fox characters to engage in epic battles within the game. The players earn various rewards within the game in crypto tokens, making gameplay lucrative. This game also has NFT collectibles for players to improve their portfolios. The NFTs are unique and allow the player to track ownership effectively, which is useful for gaming items. Having NFTs ensures that players can leverage their gameplay for value within the ecosystem. The possibility of staking $GFOX adds more opportunities for users. This ecosystem looks to elevate the meme coin experience and create sustainability. Newer memecoins that purely rely on meme notoriety have not challenged Dogecoin significantly. Therefore, investors are looking at this project keenly as one of the credible alternatives in a transitioning market. For Info about $GFOX, visit Galaxyfox.io Conclusion Competing with treasury bonds is a tall order for any other asset class. After all, an investment with the backing of the government of the world’s largest economy having high yield is very endearing. Nonetheless, the crypto market has proven its resilience in varying market conditions. Bitcoin will likely consolidate, with emerging assets that have strong upside likely to gain some tailwinds. $GFOX fits the bill as a strong new asset with incredible potential. Its strong launch is a testament to the belief in this project and should continue as it continues to gain more dimension. Visit the Galaxy Fox website today to learn more about the project.
